Professional Development


TFL Education’s leadership development framework provides a unique opportunity for UK and International Businesses to transform their professional development programmes by incorporating a bespoke Ofqual Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF) pathway of management and leadership qualifications.

Encouraging employees to focus on translating organisational strategy into effective day to day and operational performance, we provide the freedom and flexibility to design and/or align existing in-house training to create an accredited, bespoke and sustainable practitioner-led and evidence-based professional development programme.

Programme design and delivery

We do not specify prescriptive content or mode of delivery for our qualification programmes and therefore Businesses are free to design their own programme content and use a mode of delivery that meets the needs of their employees, managers, leaders and stakeholders.

We work with individual Businesses to ensure that the content of the Business delivery plan meets the assessment criteria detailed within each qualification and then provide a direct route to accreditation.

The design and/or alignment of activities and/or existing programmes encourages and supports Businesses to focus on sustainable capacity building procedures to ensure their strategic plan, vision, goals and objectives can be met.

Programme assessment

We have developed approved assignment briefs for each of the qualifications in our professional development framework, ensuring that our clients can meet the respective assessment criteria for each qualification.

The assignment briefs provide best practice guidelines, examine work-based problems, and encourage employees to apply management and leadership tools, models and theories, to real life workplace situations.

Programme accreditation

TFL Education have partnered with the Royal Chartered Management Institute (CMI) to bring this transformative opportunity to the Business sector. The CMI is the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence.

As an Approved Centre we are authorised to provide direct, quality assured, assessment and verification services for our clients.
